I'm sorry I've been away for so long. Almost a year.
So much has happened. There's been a lot of sadness and pain, as the marriage between Hugo and I has come to an end, and we are getting divorced.
Fortunately, things are very amicable between us, we still share the same house until it is sold, and we do things together, like walking the dogs, visiting car boot sales, going to the cinema, going out for day trips and other things. We are very much good friends, I'm so pleased to be able to say that.
It is very, very sad that our ten year long marriage did not survive.
This last year has also led to a huge change in my work.
The Sleeping Hare's heads in the photograph above are an example of my new work.
You might get a surprise as to just how much my work has altered.
At the end of last year I had a solo show in Mansfield Park Gallery, Glasgow, Scotland, which went very well.
I have thought a lot about returning to my blog whilst everything has being going on, but I didn't have the energy, despite the wonderful kind messages of inquiry about how I was, thank you so much for your caring emails, they have been very much appreciated. They always surprised me, and always cheered me up.
Whilst the last year has been testing, I am still here, and feeling positive. I have a lot to be thankful for, such as exciting new things happening with my sculptures, my health is good, my family and my friends and my dogs are all well, and I have been determined, (despite some of the things thrown my way), that Hugo and I remain friends, and we are friends, good friends. There is a lot of positivity there.
It feels good to be back in the land of blogging. I'm not sure how regular my posts will be for the moment, there is still a lot going on, but I'll do my best to keep up. I thought I should pop in to say hello, and explain my absence, as I did just disappear mysteriously last year.
